Yes, I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor ruling spirits, nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us, nothing below us, nor anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
– Romans 8:38-39
What a list.
Death, life, angels, spirits, present, future, powers, height, depth, or anything else can take God’s love away from us.
In the love in some relationships with people we know, love can become fragile, that in certain points in our lives our love for them and their love for us is stronger and weaker, at different levels in the way in which we feel it in the moment. We can fall out with people or lose contact with people and our love for them changes to a different sort of love, a different level of love.
But God’s love for us carries forever and ever. God’s love is unlike anything else. His love is unchanging, and though sometimes we can feel cut off, sometimes we can feel like the love we have with God is fragile also, it will never be that way. God’s love is never fragile. God’s love is like a rock, like a diamond, love which is impenetrable, unbreakable.
Nothing can separate us from God. Even when we feel distant from God which we all feel sometimes, we will never be separated from him. He stays with us through everything. Our relationship with God is above anything we can even begin to dream or imagine. God is so close to us and is always with us.
God is Father, Son, Holy Spirit. God is companionship, laughter, love.
And so we know the love that God has for us, and we trust that love.
God is love. Those who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.
– 1 John 4:16
Our bond of love, of eternal love, of amor infrangilis – unbreakable love.
